how to use the site?
It's pretty simple. First you have to know that this site wasn't created so you could learn the whole Croatian language, just the basics with the addition of some more complex things. And these basics should be enough for your visits to shops, on the beach, while talking to waiters and so on. Just browse the categories and find the words you need. Before you do so, however,
read the alphabet page to find out how Croatian words are read and spoken. Recordings will help you a lot in pronouncing words. If there isn't a word or phrase you need, visit the 'free translation' page and send it over so we can translate it for you for free. Also, check out the grammar section. Enjoy!
carry the mp3 recordings with you on your trips
You can save the pronunciation sound recordings which are in the popular mp3 format from Learn-Croatian.com and copy them to your mp3 player. Just right-click a link leading to the recording and click 'Save link as...' or 'Save target as...' depending on your browser. That way you can bring them with you on your trips to Croatia. If you're unsure how to pronounce a phrase, just
turn on your player and listen to the recording. The files are small and the quality is great, hope you take advantage of it! As of late, you can also download an archive containing ALL of the sound recordings. You don't need to download files one by one, simply download the archive and extract the recordings you need.

A language is a method of communication. Human spoken and written languages can be described as a system of symbols (sometimes known as lexemes) and the grammars (rules) by which the symbols are manipulated. The word "language" is also used to refer to common properties of languages.
Language learning is normal in human childhood. Most human languages use patterns of sound or gesture for symbols which enable communication with others. There are thousands of human languages, and these seem to share certain properties, even though every shared property has exceptions.
There is no defined line between a language and a dialect, but it is often said that a language is a dialect with an army and a navy, a statement credited to Max Weinreich. Humans and computer programs have also constructed other languages, including conlangs such as Esperanto, Ido, Interlingua, Klingon, programming languages, and various mathematical formalisms. These languages are not necessarily restricted to the properties shared by human languages.
